World’s Tallest Wooden Tower to be Constructed in Australia

Perth: In a groundbreaking move, authorities in Perth have given the green light to construct the world’s tallest wooden building. Known as the C6 tower, this “hybrid” skyscraper will soar to an impressive 191.2 meters (627 feet), nearly double the height of the current record holder.

Developed by Grange Development, this remarkable structure will be a blend of timber and reinforced concrete, with 42 percent of the tower composed of timber. Once completed, it will surpass the Ascent Tower in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, which stands at 86 meters (284 feet).

Situated on Charles Street in South Perth, the C6 tower will even outshine the upcoming Atlassian Headquarters in Sydney, which is also a timber hybrid but is still under construction.

The C6 tower will consist of laminated timber beams and a steel exoskeleton, showcasing a climate-conscious approach. It’s set to house over 200 apartments and will be Western Australia’s first carbon-negative residential building.

James Dibble, Director of Grange Development, stated, “C6’s core purpose is to promote a more climate-conscious approach. We’re using hybrid construction to offset carbon emissions, which is a major contributor to climate change.”

To construct the tower, 7,400 cubic meters of timber will be used, sourced from 600 trees. Dibble emphasized the importance of sustainable construction, saying, “We can’t grow concrete.”

The project also includes eco-friendly features such as a rooftop garden, an urban farm, and resident access to 80 new fully-electric Tesla Model 3s.
